Owner’s representative helps CCRC plan and manage multiple construction projects

The challenge

Located on 240 acres, and with approximately 700 residents, the Franciscans of St. Leonard works with the city of Centerville, Ohio, to provide affordable living services in a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) for seniors.

St. Leonard Senior Living Community engaged Plante Moran Living Forward™ (PMLF) as owner’s representative during the design and construction of three facilities on its campus:

  • A 22,000-square-foot wellness center featuring a hospitality center, pool, and restaurant
  • A 74,000-square-foot memory support building
  • A large, new storage facility

The program also included extensively redesigning and renovating an existing facility to become the center hub of the campus.

The solution

Throughout the multi-year process, PMLF kept all new design, development, and construction within a $22 million budget. In addition, PMLF helped St. Leonard manage the redesign and construction of a new campus road system.

Our team also oversaw upgrades to the community’s existing 250 cottages and garden homes, 73 independent apartments, and 100 independent apartments.

The benefit

PMLF employed its proven experience overseeing the design and construction of senior living projects to help St. Leonard bring its many concurrent projects to a successful completion.
